Interesting coincidence in early 1960's Baltimore

I was perusing some of my old blog entries (yes Chrispy uses them, too, heh) and saw an interesting coincidence of Chalker reusing artwork.

This is said to have been VOLUME 1 NUMBER 2, FANTASTIC, ILLUSTRATED JOURNAL with a provence of (1960) a published amateur fiction magazine by Chesapeake Publications, Baltimore, Maryland of 32 pages including cover. Editorial by Jack L. Chalker. The Doom that Came to Sarnath by H.P. Lovecraft, Centaur: A Cleaning up, Conspiracy Out of Dorwich by Howard St. John, artwork by Phil Harrell, Prosser, Donald Studebaker, publisher.

Compare that to the pale cover of Kaleidescope:

Yes, virtually identical even to the contents. Obviously the art has been reproportioned on the green covered fanzine, and it appears that the art is rougher on the green colored fanzine.
